I think wasting money IMO! Here's what we do.. stop by your local seafood market and pick a 1 or 2 lbs of fresh dead shrimp its a little cheaper that way.I have found this to be the most productive bait along with sandfleas.

problem is i always catch a bunch of whiting and smaller fish on the cut shrimp. i'm looking to catch some decent sized fish for a change.

Is that cheaper than going to a bait shop?

we have not caught much at all on the live shrimp in the surf. we have been fishing every weekend now (fri, sat, and sun) for about 4 months. we use sandfleas and either dead shrimp from bait store or shrimp from fish market. the sandfleas have produced the most.
